Three Injured at Denver 4/20 Rally

    Members of a crowd numbering tens of thousands smoke marijuana simultaneously at 4:20 PM, at the Denver 420 pro-marijuana rally at Civic Center Park in Denver on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Even before the passage in November 2012 of Colorado Amendment 64 promised the legalization of marijuana for recreational use, April 20th has for years been a celebration of marijuana counterculture, and the 2013 rally draw larger crowds than previous years.

    Gunshots injured three people at a 4/20 pro-marijuana rally on Saturday, disrupting the first celebration in the state since Colorado voters legalized the recreational use of pot. Denver police said a man and a woman were each shot in the leg and a youth was grazed by a bullet, but the wounds were not life-threatening. Officers were looking for two suspects in the shootings, which occurred despite high security at the event. Police said attendance was lower than the anticipated 80,000 but declined to provide a new estimate.
